CRANKY CLINTON'S IN MORE HOT WATER FOR HER PAY-FOR-PLAY DAYS AS SECRETARY OF STATE WHERE SHE'D MEET WITH YOU IF YOU DONATED TO THE CLINTON FOUNDATION.
IT'S SUCH A SCANDAL THAT CRANKY'S DECLARED SHE WILL STOP TAKING FOREIGN CONTRIBUTIONS IF SHE SHOULD BECOME PRESIDENT.
DONALD TRUMP'S RUNNING MATE MIKE PENCE COMMENTED, "APPARENTLY SHE'LL HAVE A CONFLICT OF INTEREST WITH THE CLINTON FOUNDATION IF SHE BECOMES PRESIDENT BUT I GUESS SHE DIDN'T HAVE A CONFLICT OF INTEREST TAKING FOREIGN DONATIONS WHILE SHE WAS SECRETARY OF STATE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA."
THIS PROMPTED BIG DAWG BILL CLINTON TO SQUEAL, "OOOH, BURN! HE GOT HER GOOD! I HAVEN'T SEEN HER SO MAD SINCE SHE FOUND OUT ABOUT MONICA."
Today, THE DAYTONA BEACH NEWS-JOURNAL notes, "In operations related to Iraq, a total of 4,506 members of the U.S. military have died. Another 32,263 U.S. service personnel have been wounded in action." And, also today, the US Defense Dept announced:
Strikes in Iraq
Bomber and fighter aircraft conducted nine strikes in Iraq, coordinated with and in support of Iraq’s government:
-- Near Baghdadi, a strike struck an ISIL tactical unit and destroyed an ISIL vehicle.
-- Near Kisik, two strikes struck an ISIL tactical unit and destroyed an ISIL fighting position and suppressed two ISIL mortar firing positions.
-- Near Mosul, two strikes struck an ISIL bed down location and destroyed 39 ISIL oil tanker trucks and two ISIL vehicles.
-- Near Qayyarah, a strike destroyed two ISIL mortar systems, five ISIL assembly areas, an ISIL bulldozer, two ISIL rocket rails, an ISIL rocket system and suppressed an ISIL mortar firing position and an ISIL tactical unit.
-- Near Ramadi, a strike struck an ISIL tactical unit and destroyed an ISIL mortar system.
-- Near Sinjar, a strike struck an ISIL tactical unit and destroyed an ISIL assembly area.
-- Near Sultan Abdallah, a strike struck an ISIL tactical unit.
Task force officials define a strike as one or more kinetic events that occur in roughly the same geographic location to produce a single, sometimes cumulative, effect. Therefore, officials explained, a single aircraft delivering a single weapon against a lone ISIL vehicle is one strike, but so is multiple aircraft delivering dozens of weapons against buildings, vehicles and weapon systems in a compound, for example, having the cumulative effect of making those targets harder or impossible for ISIL to use. Accordingly, officials said, they do not report the number or type of aircraft employed in a strike, the number of munitions dropped in each strike, or the number of individual munition impact points against a target. Ground-based artillery fired in counterfire or in fire support to maneuver roles is not classified as a strike.
In other violence, AFP reports:
A technician with an Iraqi satellite channel was killed on Saturday and a journalist wounded as they covered operations against ISIS in western Iraq, their employer said.
